  • He should be able to invite whomeverhe wants to, even if it isn't all of the boys. But I also agree that he shouldn't invite them at school, you should send it to their houses or before school.

  • that was how we often did it when I was in school, but our classroom gender was much more even, so it wasn't just a handful excluded. If it were me... I would probably invite all since you are already inviting 20, whats 5 more?

  • Of course it's fine. He is in kindergarten there is nothing wrong with excluding the girls.

  • If you are sending the invites to the school you should check with your school. Our school has an "all or none" policy no matter what the age of the child. If you hand out the invites to the parents instead of sending them with the kids, it should be fine, but make sure you know what parents to send them to.

  • He can invite who he wants as long as he doesn't had out invites at school.

  • i always tell my daughter to make me a list of 8 -10 people to invite. doesnt have ot be in her class either. i only restrict to girls only when its a sleepover.

  • oh and i hand the invites directly to the parents before class gets out at pickup time.

  • I don't see anything wrong with it, it is his party. So long as he doesn't hand out the invitations at school.

  • I think it is fine. The girls probably wouldn't love a "boy party" anyway.

    Answer by Hazelnutkin at 2:54 PM on Sep. 11, 2010

  • Yes that is ok, he should invite who he wants to.
